One thing you will not find in this book is a cogent examination of 'Why church fathers supressed the book of Enoch'. To write on such a subject one would have to know something about the formation of the Hebrew canon - an area in which Ms. Prophet clearly has not even taken the trouble to read the standard texts (such as Leiman, Wurthwein and Tov), and then on patristics (where R.H. Charles gives a decent summary of Origen, Jerome and other fathers' views on Enoch).
However, on the positive side, for those who are looking for a copy of the Book of Enoch, some alternative suggestions:
If you are looking for a general read about all the various traditions about the Enoch mentioned in Genesis and then taken up by various Jewish, Christian and Muslim writers since, the book for you is probably 'Enoch A Man for All Generations' by the eminent professor James Vanderkam, chairman of the Society for Biblical Literature.
If you are looking for a scholarly and accurate translation of the original text of Book of Enoch as quoted in Jude 14, then the book for you is either the 1912 translation by R.H. Charles published (still) by SPCK, or the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Volume 1 ed. J.H. Charlesworth, and published by Doubleday 1983. Avoid the elderly 1821 translation by Rev. Richard Laurence if possible. If the SPCK version is out of print, there seem to be various 'reproduction' copies available from American New Age publishing houses.Read more ›
For those persons who are unfamiliar with the Book of Enoch, it is one of the earliest scriptures ever writen which describes how 'son's of God', or fallen angels, rebelled against God and took 'daughters of men' to be their wives on Earth, as outlined in Genesis 6. It also has many other detailed teachings including, who first taught mankind how to build and use weapons of war, and also the prophesy of God's Final Judgement.
Elizabeth Prophet's splendid book is one of the most important books ever written about Enoch's scripture. It is a wonderful buy and contains many sections including, the entire Book of Enoch, Concealed Biblical References to the Watchers (and Nephilim) and also Biblical Parallels to the Book of Enoch which show exactly how these fallen angels have been "from the beginning the spoilers of the dreams of God and man".
If your interest in suppressed scripture and early Christianity was sparked by reading Dan Brown's Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code, then you will love this book. It is a compelling body of work and a must have for anyone who wants to learn about the true origins of evil and its continued existence into present day 'civilization'. The conclusions this book offers are both shocking and controversial and are perhaps more important today than ever before.
